World Gratitude Day is September 21, but Arosa Shows Gratitude All Month Long!
About World Gratitude Day
A little bit of gratitude can go a long way. World Gratitude Day started in Hawaii in 1965 during a United Nations’ gathering hosted by Sri Chinmoy, a spiritual leader and meditation teacher. During a Thanksgiving dinner at the meeting, Chinmoy presented the idea of a global holiday of gratitude. Thinking it was a wonderful idea, each dinner attendee pledged to hold an event in their country as a way to spread word of this new holiday throughout the world. The following year countries from around the world first observed World Gratitude Day on September 21, and gratitude has been given on this day ever since.
What World Gratitude Day Means to Arosa
It is important to show gratitude to make others feel appreciated for everything they do. At Arosa, we strive to show gratitude each and every day through our mission to attract, train, retain, and most importantly, treasure the best care professionals.
While we work to show gratitude each and every day, we take the entire month of September each year to show our care professionals how grateful we are for all of the work they do.

Experts on Aging
Arosa’s integrated model ‘elevates care’ through the formation of teams, which consist of care professionals (caregivers, care consultants, care managers, and care specialists), who work together to craft and implement tailored care plans for clients and their families. Many of these teams have served the local communities for years (if not decades) and offer invaluable knowledge to clients and families throughout life’s aging journey.
In addition to its dedicated caregiving workforce, Arosa employs over 70 care managers across the country. These certified professionals are experienced in a variety of fields that focus on issues related to aging and/or disability; many of whom are credentialed in gerontology, social work, mental health, nursing, physical therapy, and psychology.
